With a plain white sarong and a basic tie dye kit, we were able to create two AWESOME sarongs. Below is a breakdown of how we tie dyed the sarongs.
Purchase a white sarong and a basic tie dye kit.
Soak the sarong in water and strain it.
Lay the sarong out on the ground. Find the middle, pinch it slightly, and turn your hand clockwise to bring the sarong together in a circular shape.
After the sarong is shaped in a circle, wrap it with rubber bands to hold everything in place.
Prepare the white ash solution with warm water. Dunk the sarong in the water and leave it to soak for 20 minutes. After, take the bundled sarong out and strain the water out.
Place the sarong in a protected area where you can get messy. Prep the dye bottles and begin dying the sarong. There are detailed instructions on how to dye the sarong in your tie dye kit.
Dye the sarongs in a circular pattern. The ink comes out pretty slow so be generous and don't worry about messing up. Make sure you get both sides of the sarong and that the ink has penetrated the inside of the sarong.
Place the sarong inside a bag and let it sit for 24 hours so that the ink sets.
Run your sarong through cold water to remove the excess ink. Wash, dry, and iron your sarong.
Don't worry about buying each item separate, get both at once! The tie dye kit comes with three different colors and has enough ink to create 10+ sarongs! - Click here to purchase the kit.
